CNN Host Asks Hillary to Name 'Number One Accomplishment' as Sec. of State — Here's Her Reply

"What would you say was your number one accomplishment as secretary of state?"

Hillary Clinton failed to directly answer a question on her record as secretary of state Thursday during an interview with CNN.

"[W]hat would you say was your number one accomplishment as secretary of state?" host Wolf Blitzer asked the Democratic frontrunner.

The question was in reference to a comment by Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina who said during Wednesday's debate that the best way to stump a Democrat is to ask about Clinton's record while serving in the Obama administration.

"You know Wolf, I didn't get to see all of their debate but I saw enough of it to know that this was the usual back and forth political attacks, the kinds of things you say when you are on a debate state and you really don't have much else to say. I didn't hear anything from any of them on how they are going to make college affordable or get down student debt or get equal pay for equal work for women. What they are going to do to make sure that we deal with challenges of raising incomes for hard working people. So I don't really pay a lot of attention to this kind of rhetoric that heats up the debate stage," Clinton said.

She added, "But if anybody is interested — you know there is a long list of what I have done and I'm very proud of it. You can read my book 'Hard Choices.' Read about how I negotiated a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. Read about how I put together the coalition that led to international sanctions against Iran. You can read about what I did as first lady to get the children's health insurance program or as senator working across the aisle on issues like getting better health care for our veterans. You know, this is just the silly season."
